Tweet This metro station is one of my favorites. I was out in the snow and wind today but took some time inside the station to warm up again. What I want to work further on is the reflection in the ceiling, the reflections on each side, and perhaps a lower viewpoint and to try […]
Tweet I am lucky to live close to the fortress and often stop by when I’m out walking in town. Especially if there are wind and clouds nice patterns may appear. The first image was taken just after a storm, and the second inbetween showers on a different day. I started stepping backwards as I […]
Tweet Repetition of shape is said to be a strong element in composition, as the eye will wander from one to the other. It is one of the things I am looking for when walking around town with the camera. I’ve had a bit of an overdose of photography lately, as I’ve been working intensely […]
Tweet I love anything that has to do with shadows and silhouettes! Here I chose a vantage point that allowed me to shoot straight agains the sun. This gives better control of the shadows. Better than shooting from the side.

Tweet Winter brings amazing sunsets. Clear skies also bring cold days, like the -10 C below outside as I write this :-) This is an other shot from the rampant of Akershus Fortress in Oslo. The composition rule called “Rule of thirds” is about drawing two vertical lines and two horisontal lines across the image, […]

Tweet I selected a”Sunny” white balance to get the crisp clear blue. Also remember to set the focus point on the silhouettes and underexpose by 1-2 stops, to ensure that you get sharp silhouettes and avoid a burnt-out sky. For the second-to-last shot I have converted to b/wh and then tinted the image. The last one […]
Tweet This type of shot you achieve by exposing for the sky. Underexpose by 1-2 stops and check your histogram. Use only one focus point and it must be set on the people to get a sharp silhouette. A low camera angle is important – here I was on my knees in the mud.
